As Christmas approaches, we tend to put our knitting or crochet aside while we organise for the big day and then start to feel a bit worn around the edges without our usual stress-busting hobbies. This year, make sure that you have a project to do in the gaps between festivities -- we've got plenty to choose from in the shop -- and keep the stress at bay.
Now back to those yarn diets -- you can only diet if you really want to. Your head has to be in the right place. This is as true for yarn diets as it is for slimming diets. The answer. Take some time and go through your stash. Throw away/donate anything that has been there for too long (too long depends on your point of view!) and sort what is left into possible projects. After that you can buy for new projects with a clear head and enjoy your hobby in the New Year.
